Enchantment steals my weary heart
When`er I see the golden dawn
Which so does set my soul aflame
That I should never be forlorn

To see the beauty in a smile
To feel such magic all around
Delights me with the sweetest joy
In every sight, in every sound

Enchantment plays upon the soul
To captivate, such charms convey
All heavens wonders that we see
Around us through each passing day

Enchantment be the stars that shine
Enchantment is the glowing moon
Enchantment in the twisting vine
Enchantment through the sun at noon

Enchantment be the rambling brook
Enchantment is the rolling sea
Enchantment in the eyes that look
Enchantment through the eyes that see
